I don't want to add a "Use linux most of them time, once in a while Windows" because otherwise everyone will chose that one.

I wouldn't. My PC is slackware only, my mom's has slackware (and windows as a 'legacy' thing, but it's NEVER booted to) and I don't use PC's at work.

Linux 100% of the time. I don't remember when I used Windows for the last time. It must have been more than 6 months ago. I don't even know if Windows (installed on another partition) are still working or have crashed, but who cares...

Mostly Linux here too

I use Linux at least 95 percent of the time. I used to be an accountant, married to the 'latest and greatest' in the Windows world (Peachtree, Excel, etc). That part of my life is over now, I just surf, use e-mail, and write the occasional letter, and I couldn't be happier with Linux.

I want to capture some NTSC (USA) videotapes to disc, but I don't want to spend the time to get Freevo (linux) working. And I don't want to spend the time to get XP and patch it up. So for capturing video I'll probably use Windows 98. After that, I'll just continue on with linux. If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

Its a Linux forum but I am sure there are some members who use Windows more than Linux. Come on guys own up, so that we know who you are.

It doesn't say that we only use Linux, it is what do we use MOST

Everyone probably has one Windows machine around

This is an invalid poll. You are asking linux folks what OS they use most. Go out in the street in your hometown and ask that question.
